Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, December 10, 2016 at 6:38PM

A Chilly Weekend

Chilly and generally clear conditions tonight will give way to increasing clouds and milder weather for Sunday. Monday will be cloudy, cool and wet, with periods of mainly light rain developing during the morning. Tuesday looks like the warmest day of the forecast, while some rain showers return for Wednesday and Wednesday night as our next arctic front passes through. More cold weather will end the week.

We also forecast partial clearing of your holiday shopping list... RaysMarketplace.Com has the Snowman-O-Mometer Mug, the 2017 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar, the Big Snowman Wanted T-shirt, and the Ray's Wintry Mix Discount Combo.

Forecast Discussion

Arctic high pressure will slowly cross the southern Appalachians this weekend. It’ll be quite chilly tonight, with some moderation in the air mass as we get into Sunday afternoon. Strong warm advection develops later Sunday night and Monday.

As this warm air lifts over the retreating cold air, we’ll see rain develop Monday morning. The cold air will be displaced quickly enough to avoid any wintry weather issues.

As the week progresses, we’ll be hearing more about our perennial friend the Polar Vortex as that mass of very cold arctic air sets up shop over southeast Canada. This will push a cold front through the region during the day on Wednesday. Weather models don’t always handle these shallow cold air masses very well, and temperatures behind the front may end up being colder than what’s currently in the forecast for Thursday and Friday.

Rain showers are expected along the front Wednesday and early Wednesday night. The weather remains active into next weekend. This could bring us some winter precipitation Friday night or Saturday, though it’s way too early to get excited yet.
